Eddie’s got one crazy eye

that turns him into a cartoon

wahen a pretty girl comes by

and there’s nothin’ here to do anymore

he sits on the stoop all day

like there’s something he’s waiting for

 

Cunt-finger Louie picks up Eddie in the alley

he’s got all those guys with him

from that town where they all look like Frankie Valli

they speak fluently blonde

from her legs to her cigarette

and Louie told Eddie that he’d fix him up

but he ain’t come back yet

well, you know

It’s more trouble than it’s worth

it’s more trouble than it’s worth

Oh Wild and the Only ones

 

Tell him where you are -

Oh Wild and the Only ones

Tell him where you are

Tell him where you are

Zero quit school

and she lost her job again

and then her boyfriend beat her up

and now he won’t let her in

so she’s walking by his joint

in a black and blue dress

she looks at Louie who elbows Eddie who says

"don’t tell me, lemme guess."

It’s more trouble than it’s worth

 

he’s more trouble than he’s worth

Oh Wild and the Only ones

Tell him where you are -

Oh Wild and the Only ones

Tell him where you are

Well at first when it was this way

when they’re the only ones

and you’ve got all these ideas

you never tell to anyone

there are always magnets

pulling each of you there

living every story you’d dare

to be the only ones

the only ones...

Oh, who are living it up

oh yeah, we’re living it up

oh yeah, we’ll be living it up

 

oh yeah, we’re living it up

gotta be living it up

oh yeah, we’re living it up

 

oh yeah, we’re living it up

oh yeah, we’re living it up

oh yeah, we’re living it up

oh yeah, we’re living it up

Louie and Eddie found a reason then and there

carried her over the bridges like fluttering pages they didn’t care

in the terminal where dreams

 

let so many tickets through

when strangers look in faces

and see somebody there they knew

you might meet me tomorrow

 

as all the lights are blooming green

and you’re feeling a little lonely,

a little sad, a little mean

remember a place

inside of that hotel

where you could do anything you want to do

you couldn’t tell

 

If it’s more trouble than it’s worth

ah, this is more trouble than it’s worth

Oh Wild and the Only ones

tell him where you are -

Oh Wild and the Only ones

I’m waiting you could

 

tell him where you are -

 

Oh Wild and the Only ones

why don’t you tell him where you are?
